Diners in 'suck my d**k' bill outrage

Restaurant service without a smile

Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

NSFW A group of chums who were less than impressed with the service at a Staffordshire restaurant learned the hard way that you don't mess with England's waiting staff and walk away unscathed.

The 10 friends had booked a table in the Joe Delucci's Italian restaurant in Lichfield for 8pm last Friday. Clare Watkin, 32, recounted to the Beeb that "by the time they had taken our order it was quarter to nine and we didn’t actually receive our food until quarter past 10".

Accordingly, they voiced their discontent, and when the printed bill arrived it featured - between "1 Cab Sauv Glass, £4.00" and "1 Fish cakes, £4.95" - the unexpected "1 SUCK MY DICK FUCK FACE, £0.00".*

Watkin thundered: "I couldn't believe it. The bill read 'fish cakes’, which one of us had for a starter, and it was written right above it - absolutely disgusting language."

She added: "I'd like a written apology from the restaurant and I'd also like some compensation. I think that the way that we've been spoken to is absolutely outrageous."

Restaurant owner Nigel Langsdon said the message was intended as a "private joke" between two members of staff, and admitted: "That shouldn't come out on the bill, so we've got to find out what's gone wrong there."

He said: "But we have apologised unreservedly to the girls concerned and said that they're very welcome to come back and have a free meal and we'd like them to."

Langsdon has also offered to donate the bill for their meal to a local children's hospice. ®
